The Puskás Award

A few weeks ago, I mentioned how a certain goal scored by Barcelona’s Andrés Iniesta had become almost regular viewing material for me. I am happy to report that this goal has now been nominated by FIFA as one of the 10 best goals of 2009, in the inaugural year of the FIFA Puskás Award. I recognize that for someone with no emotional investment in Barcelona, this goal might not come off as “the most beautiful,” in which case you might consider voting for Grafite or Fernando Torres, by merit of sheer aesthetic brilliance. Whoever you vote for, though, do it now, because voting closes Monday.
